Some of us ( not me , i'm more a SSRS ) still use Crystal Reports as a platform for reporting :'( , so if you're looking for the runtime ( without installing VS ), here are the links:
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (x86)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_x86.zip.asp
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (x64)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_x64.zip.asp
Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package (ia64)http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/FilesAndUpdates/cr_net_2005_mergemodules_mlb_ia64.zip.asp
From Business Objects' WebSite comes:
Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005 Walkthroughs
…which in the end helped me in the x64 bit by specifying that
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Crystal Reports\CRRedist\X64\CRRedist2005_x64.msi
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\CrystalReports\CRRedist2005_x86
Which helped me in the following x64 problem:
An error has occurred while attempting to load the Crystal Reports runtime.
Either the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
Please install the appropriate Crystal Reports redistributable (CRRedist*.msi) containing the correct version of the Crystal Reports runtime (x86, x64, or Itanium) required. Please go to http://www.businessobjects.com/support for more information. ——————-
